The synergistic gains of the acquisition are based on Transcon's logistic skills, which with more than 30 lorries will contribute to optimising Europac Recicla's current routes, as well as in terms of the complementarity of environmental licences. Following on from this, the environmental authorisation of the acquired company allows 153 types of different waste residues to be handled and treated. On account of this, the diversification of the services on offer will allow Europac Recicla to access business sectors in which it previously had no presence.
According to José Miguel Isidro, Executive Chairman of Europac Group, “in terms of the company's will to grow in the Iberian market, this acquisition responds to the objective of becoming a comprehensive provider of waste management services that acts as a single representative for waste generating companies.
The union between Transcon and Europac Recicla Valladolid gives rise to the largest provider of recoverable waste management services in the area, in which both companies will benefit from the synergistic gains of the acquisition by attaining greater competitiveness in a very fragmented sector.
